Disappointing!

  • Summary: The minute I turned this phone on I knew it was gonna be problematic! First of all, there was a note at the top of the screen that said "Data connection refused". Really? Smh. Considering that I paid like $5 more for a similar product from a different dealer five months ago, I didn't think I would have any problems with this phone but I was unpleasantly surprised! I had to pay to get an upgrade and its still not operating at the level I desire.

  • Summary: The Phone was described BlackBerry Pearl 8100 Unlocked Phone with Quad-Band GSM,GPRS, EDGE, yt it was unlocked but cannot get the EDGE on the phone. Thats one of the main reason i purchase the phone. Just seems like a waste because Digicel our service provider cannot find the phone in their system.

I wanted to love this phone, and I did for a little while.

  • Excerpt: I love a blackberry, but I hate the size...so I was thrilled to death to get the BB quality in a smaller size.  I tried for so long to love this phone, but I just couldn't.  It lost signal constantly and turned itself off whenever it got in the mood, or so it seemed.  I called T-mobile several times to try to fix the problem, and they finally said they would send a replacement...until they noticed my warranty expired the day before.

  • Excerpt: So i got the blackberry has a present and i was ecstatic about getting it, because i related the blackberry to sophistication. So for the first year i didnt really have much problem with it. It was into the second year, near my upgrade year when i started to have major problems with it. The phone would literally die on me randomly, just when i need it the most.

My Blackberry Pearl is completely underwhelming

  • Excerpt: Despite the fact that I'm in my late 20s and a total technofile, I've resisted the urge to get a smartphone until recently.  And frankly, after my experience with my BlackBerry Pearl, I'm seeking to dump the phone and head back to something without a data package.  I hate having my e-mails mix in with my text messages, and I really hate that I have to delete my e-mails from my BlackBerry after I've already deleted them on my computer.

Crashed, constantly.

  • Excerpt: I hated this phone. A lot. It crashed on me all the time, and for no discernable reason.It was boring, kind of ugly, and seemed to be really cheaply made. I hated this phone. The faceplate fell off constantly. The phone would just freeze up in the middle of a phone call. I had to do a hard reset at least once a day.It dropped calls CONSTANTLY. I swear I could never finish a call without it dropping something.

Poor web browser and constantly freezing up.

  • Excerpt: The only great feature I can mention about the Blackberry Pearl is that the email feature for which Blackberry is known for lives up to the hype. That being said, many competitors have figured out that game and have included web access that actually works. The Blackberry was the next logical step up from a phone and separate PDA. I could leave the house and still access my email instantly with the 'push' feature.

The blackberry pearl has a lot of software issues.

  • Excerpt: First off, my blackberry was doing quite well. It would run applicationss quickly and had excelent sound quality. But after I had me blackberry pearl for about four months it started to have a lot of issues. It would frequently drop calls and had a very slow running internet browser. Now I can understand perhaps if it had been dropped a few times or somthing, but this was not the case. Now the longer I had the phone, the more issues it seemed to be aquiring.
